TWO MORE ACTS INCOMING...
Sam Binga has placed himself firmly at the centre of this new wave, with releases on some of dance music’s most respected underground labels – 50 Weapons, Exit and Critical. His sound spans the anthemic rowdiness of tracks like ‘AYO’ and ‘Lef Dem’, to the deeper
explorations of his collaborations with Om Unit, and has attracted the attention of artists such as Zed Bias and CHVRCHES – who have both hit him up for remix work – and Kode9, who featured his tune ’11th’ with Addison Groove on his critically acclaimed Rinse CD.
Kasra founded the Critical Music label, a drum and bass label based in London that is widely regarded as being at the forefront of the modern underground scene. A passionate curator and DJ, he has grown the label from humble beginnings to one of the most respected imprints in the genre. Expect a very deep, technical set from this man, a true powerhouse on the decks.
Rise started as a simple idea between two mates. We wanted more Drum & Bass in Swansea, but mainly Drum & Bass that hadn’t been done here before. This led to us organising our first event where we brought Kove to Sin City. What we thought would be a fairly quiet start to our brand turned in to the club hitting capacity and having 700 ravers skanking until the lights came on.With this immediate success, we knew we couldn’t stop there.
3 years later, we’ve brought down some of the biggest names in the scene, from High Contrast to Dub Phizix. We’ve given support to local DJs, worked with clothing brands and various artists from around Wales.
